28-year-old artist Timm Schneider brings life to the town of Weisbaden, Germany by putting googly eyes on everyday objects on the street. He calls the series They Live and his technique is very simple. He creates eyeballs using either ping-pong balls or styrofoam balls and strategically places them on otherwise boring and overlooked objects such as toilets, poles and garbage bins.
It’s amazing how a pair of eyeballs given to ordinary objects can truly brighten up a town. The characters that are a part of They Live are truly cute and humorous. I especially enjoy the ones that look like they’re in shock with their mouths wide open, but the Cookie Monster one definitely has to be my personal favorite.
